Cuter'n all get out

Now, I'm not much of a one for all that "cult of the geek" crap you see in comics fandom, which has codified arrested development (and I'm not talking about the sitcom) into a way of life. But... I'll probably buy this: Suicide Bomber Batman, coming soon from DC Direct! Torn from the pages of one of only three Superman comic books I've found to be artistically worthwhile since the late mid-eighties (RED SON, written by Mark Millar at his most Grant Morrison-esque, the art started by Dave Johnson and finished by Ireland's own man of mystery Killian Plunkett - highly recommended). Great sculpt. Look at his big goofy chin - it's truly like a Dave Johnson image made real!
